Show Dem Camp’s Tec on hip-hop from the African continent

I think right now, African hip-hop is really finding its own voice and its own unique ways of telling these stories. And I think those ways are beginning to resonate with people more and more. I think this project is testament to that because a lot of people that have listened to the project now are like, “Yo, this is exactly what I’m living day-to-day in Nigeria.” We’re not trying to sell you any foreign dreams, or any Bentleys and Champagne. I think we’re just like trying to connect with what normal, everyday Nigerians at this point are going through.

Show Dem Camp’s Ghost on the meaning behind the name of their latest album ‘Clone Wars Vol. 5 – The Algorhythm’

The ‘Clone Wars’ series basically is our idea of us versus the world, basically. It’s not necessarily a war, but we’re at constant war with the system or society or whatever. And normally, each series tends to highlight a certain period of time within what’s going on in Nigeria at the time.

So previously before this, there’s been ‘Clone Wars,’ ‘The Subsidy,’ ‘The Recession,’ and recently, we just decided to call this one ‘The Algorhythm,’ because basically, it made sense with all the things that we’ve been going through, through the last 2020, and the title just felt right because everything we’ve been going through has been on our phones, going through the algorithm of laptops and TV’s and all the data coming at you. So that’s why we titled it ‘The Algorhythm.’

Crytical, the talented artist from Tema, Ghana, is set to captivate audiences once again with the release of his latest track, ‘Bokor Bokor,’ produced by the esteemed SwatyBeats. Listen to ‘Borkor Borkor’ here: https://onerpm.link/bokorbokor

‘Bokor Bokor’ epitomizes a fusion of contemporary Hip-Hop and Rap with intricate guitar riffs and licks interwoven throughout, providing a melodic backdrop. The rhythmic drum patterns and instrumentation draw inspiration from cultural dance folk tunes, lending the composition a rich tapestry of sound. These elements converge to deliver a fresh perspective on rap music, filtered through the lens of a Gen-Z artist.

At the heart of the track lies a dynamic interplay between the buoyant beats and Crytical’s evocative lyrics, which explore the existential struggles faced by individuals navigating the complexities of life. Amidst the vibrant rhythms, Crytical adeptly articulates the internal turmoil experienced by “hustlers,” deftly weaving themes of perseverance and resilience.

A noteworthy aspect of ‘Bokor Bokor’ is Crytical’s incorporation of the popular Asante Twi phrase, further enriching the cultural tapestry of the composition. This inclusion, particularly evident in the chorus, reflects Crytical’s personal journey and underscores an enduring theme of patience amidst adversity.

With ‘Bokor Bokor,’ Crytical invites listeners on a sonic journey that transcends conventional boundaries, offering a poignant commentary on the human experience. As the track reverberates with infectious energy and introspective lyricism, it serves as a testament to Crytical’s artistry and unwavering commitment to pushing artistic boundaries.

Kakra Jay is lovestruck in amusing visuals for new song ‘Crush on You’

Kakra Jay makes a catchy entrance into the year with the inviting visuals of his latest love song, ‘Crush on You.’ Directed by DushieFrames, this exciting release stars Asantewaa and Cassious in an amusing narrative that will keep viewers glued to their screens.

The experience of having a crush is universal, and if you have ever bumped into yours, Kakra Jay’s new video is for you. Its engaging premise offers a wishful insight into the singer’s admiration for his social media crush (played by Asantewaa) on the job as a receptionist with his colleague (played by Sani Enchill) at the Rose Tree International Hotel. 

Through the ensuing vibrant scenes, Kakra Jay daydreams about being noticed by his crush despite the rude presence of her boyfriend (played by Cassious). He sings about his feelings throughout the song, seemingly connecting with her in his dream world. Despite a few awkward moments—which are whimsical, he perseveres before ultimately catching up to the reality of the situation. 

Aside from the entertainment on-screen, ‘Crush on You’ is your typical Kakra Jay tune. It is lively and has a mesmerizing quality to it. The Drumsticks-produced song reminds us that, despite his prolonged absence from music, the ‘Sexual Healing’ star is still with us. Listen here: https://open.spotify.com/track/1vfyj3NV146GAmACyx5H44
